Bug #1

delllinux.gifThe Dell Linux Survey is soon going to bear fruit. Direct2Dell blog has posted an optimistic update regarding the same.

What I find really nice is the speed at which Dell has responded regarding availability of Linux as the operating system in the home PC and laptop market. Even though I hate Dell to the core for their laptop designs, I got to give them credit for this new initiative.

Would Ubuntu’s bug #1 get fixed finally?

Dell happens to be the number 1 PC maker in the US. It won’t be wrong to assume that other PC manufacturers would mimic Dell’s strategy. And with Vista adoption moving at a limping pace, things look good.

Carthik, at Ubuntu Blog, mentions in his latest post:

More people use Windows not because they want to, but because they have to.
More people use Linux not because they have to, but because they want to.

This is going to change soon, I hope.
